Oak Park child care program expanding



An unprecedented increase in the demand for child care in Oak Park has led to a waiting list for one popular before- and afterschool program. Run by the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District, the Oak Park program provides care for students from 6:45 a.m. until school begins and after school until 6 p.m. The programs are at Red Oak […]

I finally reached the point where I had to address the hysteria regarding a new business in Agoura Hills. Sam’s Tobacco, Cigar and Hookah opens and even though the owner complies with all laws, all the “Chicken Littles” come out and wring their hands while spewing moral indignation.

Oak Park senior standout a San Francisco treat

Varney will play college ball in Bay Area

Next stop: San Francisco. Seventeen-year-old Lauren Varney was born and raised in Oak Park.
